MEMOIRS 



ALEXANDER DAVIS BETTS 

BY J. T. GIBBS 

"Uncle Betts," as he was affectionately known all over North 
Carolina, was an unusual man. He early placed his chief treas- 
ure where neither moth nor rust corrupt. He knew, with the 
absolute knowledge of an abiding faith, supported by intimate 
personal communion with God, Him in whom he had believed. 
As far as lieth in man, he was like his Maker, without variable- 
ness or any turning from the path of righteousness. Upon this 
foundation he built a life of great usefulness. 

There was no self-seeking in Brother Betts. The hardest his 
Conference had was always good enough for him. Whatever 
the people paid was sufficient for his hire. Or, rather, he knew 
that his Master in the better land would count his pay in the 
souls that turned to God under the example of his consecrated 
life and the simple eloquence of the Gospel as it came from his 
earnest lips. 

Nor was he in the least neglectful of his family; children 
grew to useful maturity in his home. With their father, they 
found plain living sufficient for their needs, and his example of 
high thinking was such as to draw them to a similar course of 
life. They attended leading colleges, with a knowledge that 
much depended upon their making the most of the opportunities 
offered. And when they received their diplomas they took 
from home lessons of more value than any imparted in the 
class-room. Brother Betts was to an unusual degree a success- 
ful father. 

Such was the man whose passing leaves a gap in the religious 
life of a great State. He was an army chaplain in the early 
sixties and a pastor in civil life until advancing years forced 
him to lay down the active duties of his beloved office. He was 
known, loved, respected and admired throughtout the Old North 
State, too well known and too secure in the affections of thous- 
ands to need eulogy now. His monuments are the lives that 
are better because of his. We shall miss his saintly presence, 
his manly independence, the light of Heaven that shone from 
his face. 

As we think of the loved ones whose tender care watched over 
his last days and picture their sad return from the place they 
laid him, our thoughts are drawn to Joseph's rock-hewn tomb. 
It was not in the nature of things that death could hold our 
Saviour. There was still work that love could do. And so it 
shall be with this His disciple. 

The subject of this memoir was the son of William and 
Temperance Utley Betts, and was born in Cumberland (now 
Harnett) County, N. C, on August 25, 1832. His boyhood days 
were spent on a farm, and he loved to the end of his days the 
running brook, the wild flower and the singing bird. He was 
educated at Summersville Academy and the University of North 
Carolina, receiving from the university at different times the 






3G XORTII CAROLINA AXXUAL CONFERENCE 



degrees of A. B., A. M. and D. D. He was converted at Chapel 
Hill, N. C, October 15, 1853, and was licensed to preach in 1855. 
He was admitted on trial into the North Carolina Conference 
in 1856 and serve'd the following charges: 

Sampson Circuit, 1857-58; Smithville Circuit, 1859; Elizabeth- 
town Circuit, 1860; Smithville Circuit. 1861. On October 25. 
1861, he was commissioned as a chaplain in the Confederate 
Army and served faithfully through the war. 

General Lee spoke of him as "that model chaplain." He 
walked for hours at a time that some footsore, sick or wounded 
soldier might ride his horse. He visited and prayed with 
prisoners. To friend and foe alike he carried the message of 
God. To the end of his life he was thanked by people back 
home for his kindness to their men who were soldiers, and for 
letters he wrote, telling of them when sick or wounded or dead 
— and many of these men claimed him as their spiritual father. 
He was filled with the Spirit; for in those trying days he 
records the fact that he was in "perfect peace." He writes of 
seven days in the saddle from Chapel Hill to Richmond as the 
happiest days of his life until then. He says: "When I knelt 
at sunset in the woods and prayed for the chaplains, the soldiers, 
my country and my family, my soul was so happy." In war, as 
in peace, he knew Him in whom he had believed. He was a 
patriot as well as a Christian. When Lee surrendered he Avent 
to Johnston's army, and when Johnston surrendered he went, 
as ordered, to the Federal headquarters and was paroled near 
Chapel Hill, N. C. 

Brother Betts, after the war, served the following charges: 
Topsail Circuit, 1866-69; Oxford Circuit, 1870-71; Rolesville Cir- 
cuit, 1872-73; Ansonvlle Circuit, 1874-75; Mt. Pleasant Circuit, 
1876-77; North Guilford Circuit, 1878-79; Duplin Circuit, 1880-82; 
Carteret Circuit, 1883; Jones' Circuit, 1884-86; Nashville Circuit, 
1887-88; Swan Quarter Circuit, 1889; Wilson Circuit, 1890; 
Goldston Circuit, 1891; Maxton Circuit, 1892-93; Rockingham 
Circuit, 1894; New Bern, Hancock Street, 1895-96; Rocky Mount 
Circuit. 1897-98; Ayden Circuit, 1899-1900; Bethel and James- 
ville Circuit, 1901; Cokesburg Circuit, 1902; Lillington Circuit. 
1903-04; Spring Hope Circuit, 1905; Town Creek Circuit, 1906- 
07; Shallotte Circuit, 1908. At this Conference held by Bishop 
A. W. Wilson in Durham, N. C, December 9-14, Rev. A. D. Betts 
asked and obtained the superannuate relation, being then in 
his 77th year. But his work was not ended. From the day of 
his superannuation he regarded himself free to work in a 
larger parish. He never got in anyone's way, but he went into 
many charges, preached, visited the people; especially visited 
in schools and prisons — and everywhere Uncle Betts was re- 
garded as a real benediction. 

There were many testimonials of this man's embodiment of 
the Christian graces and of his great usefulness while he lived. 
At the University of North Carolina there has been through the 
years abundant testimony of the favorable impression he made 
there as a good student, a sincere man, and for undoubting faith 
in the God of the Bible. Of the great number of tributes from 
the pens of our preachers I quote only a few. Dr. Swindell 
wrote: "He is a man of the highest character, and has the full 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 37 



confidence of all the people." Rev. John N. Cole wrote: "He 
has lived to make the world brighter and purer and sweeter." 
And Dr. Ivey wrote: "No other man in North Carolina Meth- 
odism will leave to the generations a richer bequest than will 
be left by Dr. Betts." 

Bi'other Betts was married May 12, 1855, to Miss Mary E. 
Davis. October 26, 1881, he was married the second time to Miss 
Priscilla M. Debnam, who survives him. Of his eleven chil- 
dren only six are living, namely. Rev. W. A. Betts. Olanta, 
S. C; J. R. Betts, Macon, N. C; Miss Sallie Betts, Louisburg, 
N. C; Dr. J. S. Betts, Greensboro, N. C; Mrs. L. P. Wilkins, 
Sanford, N. C, and Mrs. R. L. Davis, Raleigh, N. C. With his 
son. Dr. Betts, at Greensboro, Brother Betts and his wife, after 
his superannuation, lived. 

Brother Betts always attended Conference, and enjoyed much 
these annual meetings with the brethren. He went to Golds- 
boro to attend our last Conference, but sustained injuries from 
a fall, answered by phone the Conference roll call, and was taken 
to his home in Greensboro. All that could be done was done 
for him, but feebleness of age and the injuries received termi- 
nated his life. The funeral services were conducted by Dr. 
E. L. Bain, pastor of West Market Street, and Rev. J. M. Rhodes, 
president of Littleton Female College, and the mortal remains 
of Alexander Davis Betts were interred in the cemetery at 
Greensboro. 

This man, pre-eminently of single aim in life, and that the 
highest aim, has certainly added something to the sum total of 
human achievement. This man, who, take him all in all, was 
doubtless our man of greatest faith, shall surely have a part in 
the first resurection. 



CLATOR WINN SMITH 

BY M. T. PLYLER 

Reverend Clator Winn Smith was born August 7, 1919, in 
Rutherford County, N. C, near the present town of Henrietta, 
and died in Whiteville, N. C, February 12, 1919. He was the 
fourth of seven children born to Jeremiah Webb Smith and 
Sarah Jane Smith. He was left fatherless at the age of five and 
motherless at the age of fourteen years. 

Young Clator Smith grew up on the farm. With few advan- 
tages in the schools and subject to not a few hardships incident 
to the conditions of his early life, being left without the foster- 
ing care of father and mother, the lad of the hills knew not the 
privileges of many. He did not get a fair start in life. Still, 
after his conversion, the young man went to Boiling Springs 
Academy and to Rutherford College in preparation for his 
life's work. 

The experience at Cedar Grove Church, Cherry Mountain 
Circuit, Saturday, August 6, 1873, marked an epoch in the life 
of the sixteen year old country boy. On Sunday following, 
August 7, he felt called to preach. To the mandates of this 
hour he devoted the rest of his life. His birth, August 7; his 
conversion, August 6; and his call to preach, August 7, were to

him alike most definite events and made, for him, August a 
memorable month. All of Brother Smith's people were Baptists 
but his conversion at a Methodist camp meeting turned him to 
the Methodists. Reverend John W. Puett recommended Clator 
Smith for License to preach and Dr. H. A. Hudson Avas the 
Presiding Elder. These devout men must have left their 
impress on the young preacher. 

At Raleigh, in 1882, with Bishop Keener, presiding, Clator 
Winn Smith was received on trial in the North Carolina Con- 
ference. He was ordained Deacon by Bishop Linus Parker at 
Wilmington, and Elder by Bishop J. C. Granberry at Reidsville 
in 1886. The start on an itinerant's rounds made at Raleigh 
by this Methodist preacher was a journey not notable for soft 
and easy places. A bare recital of his appointments makes a 
suggestive story for all who are acquainted with the times and 
are able in their imaginings to follow his goings. 

Brother Smith served the following charges: Onslow Circuit, 
1883-4; Whiteville, 1885; Enochville. 1886-7; Elizabethtown, 
1888-9; Whiteville, 1890-1; Bladen Street. Wilmington, 1892. 
A Superannuate relation was granted Brother Smith for 1893, 
but in August of that year he was put in charge of Whiteville 
charge, which was given up by Rev. W. A. Forbes. Whiteville, 
1894; Red Springs, 1895-6; Elizabethtown, 1897; Carver's Creek, 
1898-00; Supernumerary, 1901-2-3-4; Columbus, 1905-6-7-8; Rober- 
son, 1909-10-11; Raeford, 1912; Troy, 1913; Winfall, 1914-15. 

This record of more than thirty years spent in weariness and 
sufferings, sometimes personal sufferings, and for many years 
the sufferings of an invalid wife, will never be fully knoAvn 
until the books are opened above. Always on circuits, some of 
which were big and undeveloped, Brother Smith knew well the 
trials of a Methodist preacher. Though afflicted in body and 
burdened with cares in his home he labored and suffered on. 

Clator W. Smith was a man of strong convictions. He was a 
man genuine to the core and had a lasting contempt for the 
meanness of men. Sometimes the sharpness of his rebukes led 
men to misunderstand his motives and fail to appreciate his 
efforts to help. He preached the gospel of repentence and of 
salvation by Jesus Christ as the only hope of men. As he moved 
in the obscure ways among men, oftentimes in places where 
the light had gone out of life, they always knew that a man of 
prayer was among them pointing all to a Saviour and Guide. 
Perhaps, this man was most potential in life and most effective 
as a Methodist preacher because of his power in prayer. He 
was deemed a practical and earnest preacher who came with a 
message of intense conviction. Energetic in action, genuine in 
his religious experience, strong in stating his convictions, and 
devoted to his Lord, the life of Brother Smith counted where- 
ever he went. Sinners were saved and the material interests 
of the church built up. At Enochville, Whiteville, and Bladen 
Street he built parsonages. 

On December 15, 1886, Clator Smith and May Mosby were 
married by Rev. Paul J. Carraway at Whiteville, N. C. To them 
were born Annie May, Fannie Slade. Sally J., Hellen, Cora Winn, 
and Clator Webb. All of these children remain to serve their 
generation and to bless the world; and the dear devoted wife.

knowing only the invalid's chair, proves an inspiration to all 
by her hopefulness and good cheer. She proved a noble inspira- 
tion to her devoted husband through all the years of their 
pilgrimage. He found much comfort in his last days by the life 
and labors of his children, and the hopes he entertained for 
their future. 

We first knew Brother Smith with real intimacy when in his 
home after he had made the long move across the conference to 
the Perquiman's Circuit. Though the invalid wife and mother 
had not walked a step for eight years, they gave themselves to 
the task and no man on the Elizabeth City district gave him- 
self more entirely to his work than did this man of God that 
year. But before the next year had passed the final break came 
and it was plainly evident to his friends that his labors had 
ended. Broken though not in despair, he moved to his home in 
Whiteville. This was to end his itinerary. The pilgrimage was 
drawing to a close. 

Whiteville had been somewhat a harbor of refuge to this man 
of God whenever the adverse winds had become too severe. 
Whenever afHictions in his family or in his own person com- 
pelled him to rest awhile, he would seek this haven of rest. 
Here the people knew him best and appreciated his life and 
labors. They believed in him and trusted him. At Sunday 
School in Whiteville on the Second Sunday in December, 1918, 
he attended his last public service fully conscious that the end 
was near though he remarked on his way home that day that 
he felt well enough to live six months yet. The next Sunday, 
he sat with the family at the table for the last time. From 
this time to the end on February 12, 1919, he suffered untold 
agonies, but he faced death unafraid. 

To his Presiding Elder Rev. J. H. Shore, some weeks before 
his passing. Brother Smith spoke with calmness and much as- 
surance of the end which he realized was near. Of special con- 
solation to him in his last weeks of untold agony was the 
memory of the many friends who had helped him through the 
years. He was most appreciative of a kindness done him. 

Rev. J. H. Frizzelle, preacher in charge at Whiteville, bears 
this beautiful testimony: 

"As his pastor I found him as true as steel to the 
church and as clear as the sun in his Christian experi- 
ence. A true friend to his pastor and more than willing 
to render any service he could, his influence here was 
of the finest type and still abides. His attitude on all 
moral questions was distinct and open. His energy was 
the most remarkable of any man that I have been 
thrown with. It was pitiful to see him struggling to get 
strong enough to attend conference; but it was not 
within his strength and had to be given up." 

Near the noontide hour of a beautiful day, the ills that flesh 
is heir to and the hardships incident to an itinerant career came 
to an end. The body was laid away in the cemetery at White- 
ville. The family and friends resumed the ordinary rounds 
of life but the influence for good of this our brother now lives 



1

and moves above the commonplace. Since no good deed ever 
utterly perishes from the earth and the faithful are had in 
everlasting rememberance, this itinerant Methodist preacher 
did not spend his life in vain. Such, we are assured, shall 
shine as the stars forever and ever. 






CHARLES O. DURANT 

BY T. M. GRANT 

It was our pleasure to accompany Brother C. 0. DuRant to 
the last session of our Conference. We travelled in an auto- 
mobile and through the unrestrained intimacy of the trip the 
simple greatness of the man was always evident. He had just 
finished a ministry of four years on the Snow Hill Circuit and 
was going to conference to get another appointment. The un- 
selfish way in which he had given himself to the work of the 
ministry, for thirty-six years, had made him a prematurely old 
man; yet he felt new strength in the anticipation of a new field 
in which to labor and was gladly awaiting the word that would 
send him. God, however, decreed that the work of Brother 
DuRant was needed in another world. Spanish Influenza seized 
him while at conference and from its effects he never recovered. 
In the early morning of March 13 this year when another day 
was kissing the earth with promise and suggestion, God kissed 
his soul and with the promise of eternal life and took Brother 
DuRant unto Himself. The body was laid to rest in Snow Hill 
near the scenes of his last ministry. Reverend W. A. Piland 
and Reverend J. L. Rumley together with the writer conducted 
the burial service. 

We had the pleasure of knowing Brother DuRant only a few 
months, but those months were triumphant and glorious ones 
for him. He was travelling the last leagues of the journey; 
he moved in the power of a sublime, and the glory of a sacred 
joy. There might have been a time when his joy was little, his 
faith anaemic, and his praise feeble, but not when we knew him. 
He could see his way out the long gorge to the far light on the 
shining table lands where God Himself is moon and sun; radiant 
and compelling was his spirit in the conception of such. As 
we looked upon him in those victorious hours no boastful nor 
arrogant spirit was apparent; he was an earnest and humble 
spirit rejoicing to do the will of his Master. Doubtless God 
could have made a better man but doubtless God never did. 

Charles O. DuRant was born in Brunswick County. North 
Carolina. September 6, 1858. His home was one that knew God 
and in the atmosphere of his Godly home he laid the founda- 
tion work of his useful ministry. 

His school advantages were limited to years of preparation in 
the public schools of reconstruction days and a short time at 
old Trinity College. His days in school however did not meas- 
ure the extent of his education. He was a good student and in 
the course of years gathered about him a well selected library 
which fed his mind and inspired his spirit. At the age of 
twenty-three he was licensed to preach. The following year. 



JOUKNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 41 



1882, at Raleigh, he was received on trial into the North Caro- 
lina Conference. For thirty-six years he preached with joy 
the message of redemption through the cross of Jesus Christ. 
During his thirty-six years of service he served the following 
charges: Point Caswell Mission, Randolph Circuit, Pekin Cir- 
cuit, Youngsville Circuit, Raleigh-Brooklyn, Warren Circuit, 
Halifax, Currituck, South Creek, Craven, Hamlet, Richmond 
Circuit, Goldston, Elon, Newport, Goldsboro, Snow Hill. 

In 1891 he was married to Miss Edgerton of Wayne County. 
This good woman entered the itinerancy without complaint 
and found joy therein. In his home. Brother DuRant found a 
ready place of rest and soul refreshment from the strain of his 
consuming ministry. Mrs. DuRant, together with three children 
Ethel, Winnie, and Fred, survive him. 

We would not attempt to put this sacred man's character 
through any analytical examination but there were some of his 
virtues which added special charm and attractiveness to his 
character, that we wish to mention. 

He believed that the minister was a pastor with the severe 
drive of his conscience ever urging him, — he never overlooked 
this truth. His flock was never forgotten. He carried the 
sick upon a bosom of prayer to the great Shepherd; with tender- 
ness and firmness he sought the wandering sheep; in secret joy 
he led his flock into the fields of God's truth, where they might 
feed. 

Together with the man's fervent care of his fiock we would 
mention his purity of soul. During his ministry of thirty-six 
years there can not be found a single shadow of suspicion 
resting upon his record. He was an Israelite in whom there 
was no guile, catching in his soul the beauty of God and His 
Kingdom, and reflecting it to the world. Men were glad to be 
in his presence because they heard none of the distant sounds of 
hell, but heaven's notes rushed upon their ears through the 
symphony of his spirit. 

Again we would mark that feature of his soul that made his 
work imperative and sent him to his task without an alter- 
native, because he had a consciousness that God had sent him. 
No ordinary hindrance could keep him from meeting an appoint- 
ment to preach the word. Driven by this consuming passion to 
do the will of the Master, he subjected his body to many hard- 
ships and he became weak and feeble before age had an oppor- 
tunity to bring such results. He did not have strength to 
fight, when influenza attacked him. He had offered himself as a 
living sacrifice to the work of the Kingdom. 

We thank God that He gave us such a man as Charles O. Du- 
Rant and may we never forget the life he lived among us. 



DAVID BASCOMB PARKER 

BY HARRY M. NORTH 

Two years ago David Bascomb Parker retired from active 
service in the Conference, and went to live in his little home 
near Hamlet. It was here that he died last April. 



4:2 XOKTH CAKOLIIS^A ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Some of the most important events in his life are these. He 
was born at Roseboro, Sampson County, December 2, 1850, being 
the son of John and Jenetta Parker. On November 5, 1902 
he was married to Miss Annie Saunders, who now lives in 
Hamlet with their two children, David Bascomb and James 
Saunders Parker. Besides these relatives there were also four 
brothers and eight sisters. Brother Parker was a school 
teacher before he entered the ministry. He joined the North 
Carolina Conference at Elizabeth City, and served continuously 
until his superannuation in 1917. His death occurred on April 
17, 1919. 

The following were the charges which he served, given in 
the order and time of his service: Campbelton, 1895-96; Samp- 
son Circuit, 1897; Jacksonville and Richlands. 1898; Pantego 
Circuit, 1899-1900; Hobgood, 1901-05; Youngsville, 1906-10; 
Elizabethtown, 1911-13; Candor, 1914; Laurel Hill, 1915-17. 

As to personal characteristics David Parker was rather 
modest and retiring in his demeanor. He did not take his con- 
gregations by storm w^hen he came upon the scene. But before 
he had been long with them his people realized that he was 
firm and strong, and they were assured that a Christian gentle- 
mand and minister of the Gospel of the Christ had come to be 
their pastor. It was not his lot to be a pulpit orator, to sway 
the multitudes; to walk in the limelight before applauding 
hearers. His type was that of the steady, faithful, diligent 
pastor who looks carefully after the details of his charge. One 
would have to go to his place of work to find him. He was 
rather scholarly in his methods of thought and in the manner 
of presenting the truth. He did not lift up his voice in clamor, 
and his cry was not heard in the streets. His was the meek 
and quiet spirit which, in the sight of God, is of great price. 

After a man goes from us it is the custom to ask, "What 
was he worth?" and "How much did he leave?" Prom a physi- 
cal standpoint this man left an unpainted cottage in the midst 
of a few acres of poor soil. But from a better viewpoint he left 
a good name, a clean character and a worthy record of service 
in the ranks of our ministry. His discharge was with honor. 
How much Avas he worth? We would have to ask what he had 
meant to the sick, and to his people who were passing through 
affliction, and to little children who had been shepherded by 
him, and to sinners brought to Christ by his ministry; and how^ 
much he was worth to those in his own home who knew him 
most intimately. His rating will not be found in Bradstreet's 
records, but rather in that which the angels keep in the Lamb's 
Book of Life. 

In his mind there was no question as to our Gospel. He 
accepted it as the complete thing that it is, and preached it in 
its Avholeness convincingly to his flock. This was but to make 
good in practice the vow he had taken upon entering the 
ministry. 

When our friends come to the end of life in this world it is 
always of interest to hear what they have to say of the journey 
thus far and of the outlook. It was the writer's privilege to be 
at the bedside of this man of God shortly before his going, and 
to hear him testify that it was well with him. Of course, we 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 43 



knew it was well, still it was good to hear him say so. The 
ministry, the church, our common human life have all been 
made the richer because David Bascomb Parker came this way. 

Services to his memory were held in the Methodist Church at 
Hamlet, and his body was laid to rest in the cemetery there. 
The angels will know where to find his dust in the day when 
the Lord shall come to make all things new. 



WILLIAM A. FORBES 

BY N. M. MCDONALD 

Rev. William A. Forbes, the third child of Rev. John H. and 
Mrs. Mary Forbes, was born near Danville, Va., February 18, 
1846, and died at his home, Buies Creek, N. C, on Tuesday 
evening, October 27, 1919. 

Brother Forbes gave his heart to God in his ninth year, and 
joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in which his 
father was a beloved local preacher, at Rock Springs, near 
Danville, Va. He moved from this community, when about 
grown, and settled at Roxboro, N. C, where immediately he 
entered heartily into the life and work of the church; being 
soon elected Superintendent of the Sunday School and for a 
time Superintendent in general of the Sunday schools of Person 
County. He, also, at this time, was a singing master, and taught 
a number of classes in singing and hymnology. While thus 
engaged as singer and Sunday school superintendent, he felt 
the call and was licensed to preach, the gifts for which he exer- 
cised as a local preacher for a number of years. 

In his twenty-first year, he was married to Miss Virginia 
Powell, near Milton, N. C, May, 1866. To this union two children 
were born, one of whom died in infancy. The other is now Mrs. 
D. C. Bryant, living near Wallace, N. C. 

His wife was truly a good woman — a helpmeet indeed, — For 
thirty-four years they labored together in the Lord, until at the 
time of Brother Forbes' pastorate at Dunn, she became greatly 
afilicted and after a long illness, died December 4, 1900, at the 
home of the daughter, and was buried near Wallace. 

On June 2, 1902, he was married a second time, to Miss Lola 
B. Crowder of Buies Creek, N. C, who survives him. To them 
one child was born, but it died in infancy. However, they 
adopted a bright boy to whom they gave the name of Luther 
Davis Forbes, and he, also, survives. No man in old age and 
failing health ever had a more self-sacrificing and devoted com- 
panion than did Brother Forbes, as the wife of his last days. 
Her devotion was wonderful and their companionship was 
beautiful. 

It was when about forty years of age, that he entered the 
itinerant ministry, joining the North Carolina Conference on 
trial at the session which convened at Charlotte 1885. But he 
had, certainly, a very remarkable and successful ministry, 
covering a period of nearly a quarter of a century, having 
served charges as follows: Magnolia, 1886-87; Kenansville, 



1888-9-90-91; Whiteville, 1892-93; Bethel, 1894-95; Mattaraus- 
keet, 1896; Richlands and Jackson, 1897-98; Dunn Circuit, 1899- 
1900-01; Henderson, 1902. 

In the fall of that year, his health failed him and he took the 
superannuate relation; but, regaining his health during the 
next year, he was placed again as an effective at the Conference 
of 1903; receiving further appointments as follows: Duke, 1904- 
05; Dover, 1906; Farmville, 1907-08-09; and Atlantic, 1906. In 
that year his health again failed him, and he asked again for 
the superannuate relation, which from that time on. he was 
obliged to retain, till his translation. During all these years, 
he has made his home at Buie's Creek, doing such work as he 
could for the church, as opportunity offered, and being always 
the truly helpful friend of the pastor, as well as the distinct 
leader of the religious community life. 

Early in the year it became apparent that Brother Forbes 
could not long remain with us; but it was only five weeks 
before his death, that he had to take to his bed. Then he 
suffered no pain, just gradually weakened away till he fell on 
sleep to wake in the glory land, to which he looked forward, 
with an ever brightening hope. This hope he made clear to all 
the many who came to see him. He told his Presiding Elder 
to bear this message to his Comrades: "Tell the boys I will 
not answer the roll call at Conference, as I am going to answer 
the roll call in heaven." That roll call he answered with ex- 
ceeding great joy. 

The funeral service was conducted from the residence at 
Buie's Creek, N. C, on Tuesday afternoon, October 28th, by 
the writer assisted by Rev. J. M. Daniel. Beautiful tributes 
were paid to his life and character, by Brothers Miller and 
Egerton of the Baptist Church, and Brother Menius of the 
Presbyterian Church, and a multitude of neighbors — young and 
old — passed the casket in reverent review. Then on Wednesday 
morning his body was carried to Old Rock Fish Presbyterian 
Church, near Wallace, and laid beside that of his first wife, to 
await the resurrection. The burial service was conducted by 
Rev. M. D. Hix. 

Sleep, beloved brother, and rest from thy labors, for 
"Precious in His sight is the death of His saints." 



JAMES M. BENSON 

BY S. E. MEIBCEai 

James M. Benson was born in Hyde County, December 12, 
1853, and died March 9, 1919. He was reared under religious 
influence and at about twenfy-one years of age was converted 
under the ministry of the late Rev. J. D. Buie. From the time 
of his conversion he was active in every phase of church work. 
He served as steward, Sunday School Superintendent and leader 
in prayer-meetings. 

Brother Benson was a man of culture and received splendid 
training in the schools. For a number of years he was one of 



.lOUKXAL OF PROCEEDINGS 45 



the successful educators of the state. He was admitted into the 
Conference on trial in Raleigh in 1897 and served the following 
charges; with great fidelity: Jones Circuit, 1897-1900; Golds- 
boro Circuit, 1901; Nashville Circuit, 1902-04; Snow Hill Cir- 
cuit, 1905-08; Roper Circuit, 1909-10; Kenly Circuit, 1911-14; 
Carthage Circuit, 1915; Troy and Biscoe, 1916; Vass Circuit, 
1917-18. 

In July, 1918, on account of declining health, he laid down his 
beloved work, hoping day after day that his health would at 
least allow him to complete the year. But his Lord willed 
otherwise. 

Brother Benson was twice married; first to Miss Sarah Bon- 
ner of Hyde County. These two lives seemed perfectly blended; 
there was never a note of discord. She was the mother of his 
children, some of whom died in early childhood, and four sur- 
vive. His second wife was Miss Annie Williams, of Hamilton, 
a woman of rare intellectual gifts, a deeply spiritual woman 
who proved herself a companion and diligent help-meet during 
his ministry. 

No man in the Conference was more greatly beloved than 
Bro. Benson. Those who came in personal contact with him 
were impressed with his deep spiritual life. There was a 
magnetism about him that immediately drew men to him. 
Those to whom he ministered frequently said of him "Brother 
Benson is a man of such wisdom and large-heartedness that 
anyone in trouble may go to him and find comfort and strength." 
His prayers for others were special pleas with God that never 
failed of answer. His home life was beautiful. There was 
never a murmur or complaint; if there was ever an occasion 
for reproof, it was so gentle one scarcely recognized it as such, 
but felt an impulse to refrain from anything that would wound 
him. His sons and daughters, though having reached maturity, 
always sought his fatherly counsel and advice, and never 
entered upon any business proposition without consulting him. 
His preaching was of a high order of mind and heart that 
lifted the hearer heavenward. He often presented the beauties 
of the Christian life. He dealt with sin in its every phase, but 
with a gentleness that stamped itself upon the conscience, and 
men were sometimes converted in the quiet of the regular 
morning or evening service. 

From November until March, his frail body was so racked by 
disease and he was in such a weakened condition that he talked 
very little but frequently expressed himself as ready and wait- 
ing to see loved ones on the other side. The way was bright, 
made so by a faith that claimed every precious promise. 

During the last four days of his illness, he suffered intensely 
but occasionally rallied. With his face radiant and shining he 
said when a hand was laid on his heart and he was asked if 
he were suffering pain — "Happy." After being unconscious two 
nights and a day, early Sunday morning every vestige of pain 
departed from his face, he heard the Master's call, opened his 
eyes, looked at the two who were standing by his bedside and 
smiled, again looked up and smiled, and then the gentle spirit of 
Brother Benson took its flight and returned to God who gave it. 
We shall see him again for we shall know where to find him. 



46 XORTII CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

MRS. ANNIE PERSON FRIZELLE 

BY A. J. PARKER 

Annie Person Frizelle, the wife of Rev. James H. Frizelle, 
of the N. C. Conference, was born near Carthage, N. C, October 
25, 1863 and died in Whiteville, N. C, March 18, 1919 and was 
buried there. By the request of the family of the late Rev. 
C. W. Smith her last resting place is in their family plot. The 
funeral was conducted from the church by Rev. A. J. Parker, 
assisted by Rev. J. C. D. Stroud. 

Sister Frizelle was the daughter of William and Margaret 
Person and a niece of Rev. S. D. Adams of sacred memory. 
Her father was a brave Confederate soldier and was mortally 
wounded in the Battle of Gettysburg and died while the army 
was retreating through Virginia and was buried in Winchester 
of that State. She had no chidren, but was a mother to her 
husbands little three year old sister Etta, whom she reared to 
womanhood with all the affection a real mother could lavish 
upon her own child and when she was equipt for life's duties 
saw her happily married to Mr. J. C. Williams, the merchant 
prince of Wilmington, N. C. Her mother and only brother Mr. 
W. B. Person died years ago. Only one sister remains, Mrs. 
W. K. Jackson of Carthage, N. C. 

Sister Frizelle was married on June 5, 1884 to Mr. James H. 
Frizelle, who at the time was in business in her native town. 
When her husband informed her that he felt called to enter the 
ministry, she with joy threw herself into his plans and was a 
great factor in his preparations for this new field of labor. She 
went cheerfully to the little cottage parsonage on their first 
circuit. The furnishings were scant and worn but she never 
murmured, counting it a great joy to be permitted to have some 
part in her husband's success as a soul winner. 

For nearly 27 years she was a helpmeet indeed undergoing the 
hardships, trials, and privations incident to the itinerant 
preacher's life and with never a word of complaint. No cloud 
was ever so dark, but that her faith saw "The silver lining," 
no disappointment however bitter, but some how she saw the 
Lord's hand in it all. While at Roanoke Rapids her health 
broke down, and during the remaining 20 years of her life 
she never saw a day when she was well. She bore her suffer- 
ing patiently and died triumphantly. 

She was converted early in life and joined the Methodist 
church. She grew up loving her church and was ever faithful 
to the vows she took at its altar. As a primary Sunday school 
teacher, and Superintendent of Junior Epworth League she 
had but few equals. She was active in the Woman's Missionary 
Society, but her greatest achievement was in leading young 
people to Christ. At the altar she seemed to know how to 
whisper the right word that showed the earnest seeker the way 
to victory. Many and beautiful have been the letters of sym- 
pathy received by the bereaved husband, saying among other 
things: "She led me to Christ." What a rich legacy to those 
left behind. Her copy of the Bible shows that it had been con- 
stantly in use, and is marked in a wonderful way. Many of 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 47 



the great texts seems to have been choice food for her reflec- 
tions. She was modest and retiring, strong in prayer and with 
a faith that never failed. 

Her great ambition was to make an ideal home for her hus- 
band and well did she succeed. She loved books and read them 
to good purpose. For some time she knew her days were 
numbered, but she had no fear of death. During her last visit 
to my home the past summer, she came into my study and said: 
"I want a little talk with you, for this may be my last oppor- 
tunity," she said. "I know my condition and I cannot live 
many months at most and may be not many days. When I die 
I want you to conduct my funeral. I am ready to go when my 
Lord sends for me. I have three nephews in France who are 
fighting for their country, some how I want to live to see my 
boys get back home, but I fear I shall never see them again in 
the flesh. I know Jim will be so lonely when I am gone, no 
woman has ever had a better husband than I and it nearly 
breaks my heart to leave him, but I am ready to say "Lord, Thy 
will be done." She returned to Whiteville and I did not see 
her again till the day of her death. She left the boys in France 
a message and said: "They will know how auntie felt about 
them." I shall never forget the little talk in my study, while 
her husband was oiling his car preparatory to returning home. 
She did not seem to be facing death, but rather a journey to a 
delightful land. Hers was a brave and noble life. Her hus- 
band was called home from the session of the last conference 
in Goldsboro on account of a sudden attack; from then until 
the end came she suffered greatly, but with it all was patient 
and at times cheerful. Her only living sister, though feeble_ 
in health, was with her when the end came. 



I 



MRS. IVER ELLIS CADE 

BY HAKRY M. NORTH 

The ranks of North Carolina Womanhood were greatly weak- 
ened when Mrs. Iva Ellis Cade fell asleep in death last summer. 
The call came so suddenly that her best friends are scarcely able 
to realize that she is gone. The following will serve as a 
chronicle of the thirty years of her earthly life. 

Iver Ellis was born in Durham, July 15, 1889. She attended 
the city schools, and in 1909 graduated with honors from Trinity 
College. For the next three years she taught in the public 
schools of Durham and Pender counties. On October 14, 1914, 
she was married to Rev. William A. Cade of the North Carolina 
Conference. In this new relation she went with her husband 
who was sent as Junior preacher to Centenary Church, New 
Bern. After this she served with him for two years at River- 
side and Bridgeton; then two years at Edenton, and into the 
midst of.^h.is year at Rocky Mount. She died of tonsilitis on 
August 2, 1919, after an illness of only one week. 

In early childhood she joined old Main Street Church, in 
Durham, and became one of its most devoted members. Espe- 
cially she brought her consecrated intelligence to the work of 



48 XORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



the Sunday School and Epworth League. Later on in the 
larger circles of the North Carolina Conference she was a well 
known and trusted leader in the Epworth League, having been 
one of the officers ever since its organization in this conference. 

In her home life she was finer still. There were two little 
children to call her mother. William Albert, Jr., who was born 
July 22, 1915, and Alma Louise, who came on October 24, 1916. 
She nurtured and trained these babies with a skill that is 
rarely found in these times. Their home was a little heaven 
upon earth. The blow has fallen very heavily upon her hus- 
band who is left with the load of the pastorate and the little 
ones on his hands. Her only sister, Mrs. Frank Green, of 
Durham, shares with him the unexpected sorrow. For the 
nearly five years of their married life Mrs. Cade regarded the 
pastorate as a joint ministry with her husband. He testifies 
that in all their experience of poverty and hard work she never 
uttered any save words of cheer and encouragement. 

Hers was a most excellent Christian character. She had the 
sweet grace of her mother, who was herself the gentlest of good 
women, and who left us only a year before her daughter went. 
In Mrs. Cade were seen the finest products of the Christian 
Home, the Christian College and the Christian Church blending 
in a mature womanhood. Having received much from these 
three institutions, she gave back to them without stint her 
loyalty and devotion. Her life should be a lasting inspiration 
to the young women of the church, and especially of the League. 
These young people will not soon forget her spirit of cheerful- 
ness and service as it was manifested in her leadership in all 
wholesome recreation and religious work. 

She was so young to go. We had thought she would have 
been with us for a long time to bring to full fruitage what her 
life had so richly promised; and it seemed that she could not 
be spared. After all, though, our lives and our worth are not 
measured by the number of years we spend on earth. Iver Ellis 
Cade lived more in thirty years than many women have in 
seventy; and she, being dead, yet speaketh. 

They placed her body in the cemetery at Durham, where her 
father and mother and grandparents were buried. The dust of 
summer and the snows of winter shall fall there until time 
grows old and the end shall come, and our Lord will tell us 
why these things should be. Until that hour may grace, mercy 
and peace from God, the Father, God, the Son and God, the 
Holy Ghost abide with those who wait and sorrow. 



MRS. SUSIE SOUTHERLAND LEE 

BY B. C. BEAMAN 

The subject of this memoir, Mrs. Susie Sutherland Lee, wife 
of Rev. T. W. Lee, one of the younger members of the North 
Carolina Conference, was born in Kenansville, N. C, December 
19, 1889, and died of influenza-pneumonia in Mayesville, N. C, 
October 10, 1918. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 49 



Mrs. Lee grew up in the Presbyterian Church, having joined 
that church on confession of faith in early childhood, and in its 
enriching fellowship she might have spent all of her life but 
for the one event that means everything to a genuine, high- 
souled woman; she fell in love, and the object of her affection, 
in the providence of God, proved to be a young Methodist 
preacher, just out of college who had come to take up the re- 
sponsibilities of an itinerant on the Kenansville circuit, in the 
bounds of which she lived. Love called to her, and like Rebecca 
of old, she said, "I will go," and on October the 14, 1914, she 
plighted her troth to her young preacher-husband giving her 
hand and heart to share with him the joys and sorrows, the 
victories and the defeats of an itinerant's life. She immediately 
joined her husband's Church, as the proper thing for a loyal 
wife to do, and to the hour of her lamented death she continued 
a devout, earnest Christian, having laid her life, and all the 
possibilities of it in love's name, a living sacrifice on the 
Methodist altar. 

Hand in hand the husband and his devoted young wife turned 
their faces with eagerness toward the great tasks, the high and 
holy ministries to which they believed that God had called them, 
and in the joy and radiance of love's young dream they saw the 
enchanted paths of service stretching away through the vista of 
the lengthening years even down to old age, the hush of the 
twilight, and life's calm evening crowned at last with the bene- 
diction of God: "Well done, thou good and faithful servants, 
enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." 

But alas for the phantom of human hope, and the dreams of 
youth that never come true! Only for a little while, only for a 
few miles of the mortal journey, did this beautiful spirit walk 
by the side of God's young prophet, cheering him, comforting 
him, inspiring him to do his best. Their young lives have 
scarcely fused in the pure white flame of love's holy passion, 
and the orange blossoms of the bridal wreath have barely 
wilted under the touch of time before the hands that clasped so 
lovingly at the bridal altar are wrenched asunder at the open 
grave. In the awful scourge of influenza that swept the state 
and nation in 1918 she fell its victim, and all life's tasks were 
done. 

To us who see so dimly and with such blurred vision, her life 
work had just begun; but surely God never blunders, and faith 
and sweet submission must leave it all to Him. 

The glory of motherhood had crowned her young life, and she 
left a sweet little babe eight months old, love's supreme gift, in 
whose pure prattling presence the lonely husband may live over 
again the few brief years of wedded bliss, and find in its holy 
companionship a bond and a voice that will make the past more 
than a memory. 

One who knew Mrs. Lee well pays her this beautiful tribute: 
"Our community suffei'ed an irreparable loss in her death. Hers 
was a bright, cheerful disposition, carrying sunshine and happi- 
ness with her always. Her heart and home were ever open to 
all who came to her for comfort and counsel; all given so gently 
and so modestly. Her influence over the young was marvellous. 
Both old and young loved and appreciated her. She was never 



50 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



too busy (though she was never idle) to help others. She was 
the most devoted and happy wife and mother I ever knew. Her 
great ambition was to see and help her preacher-husband grow 
and develop in his noble work." 

Love would have kept her longer, and why the dear Lord 
called her so early, with the dew of youth still upon her, and 
with her work seemingly not half done, and from the little 
parsonage home where she reigned with such queenly grace, 
and of which she was the light and joy, we may not now in- 
quire. Perhaps he needed her for some larger task in some 
fairer world. And so we will think of her as still living, still 
loving, still learning, still busy, until earth's shadows lift and 
we shall know even as we are known. 









REPORTS AND RESOLUTIONS 



[1] 

ADDENDUM TO REPORT OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF 
TRINITY COLLEGE 

In view of the discussion now carried on for some time concern- 
ing an earlier date for ttie meeting of the North Carolina Conference 
and in view of the increasing difficulties in the way of getting 
entertainment for the Conference, and since in this connection 
Trinity College has come to the minds of at least some members 
of the Conference, it seems in order for to speak a word in behalf 
of the College. 

If the Conference now or later should decide upon an earlier 
date for its annual sessions and should find the difficulties in 
the time-honored method of entertainment become too great, then 
Trinity College will gladly make available its whole plant and 
resources for such uses as the Conference might wish. The College 
could easily accommodate the Conference, but the meeting of the 
Conference would of course have to be held before the opening of 
college. 

This postscript to the report of the Board of Trustees of Trinity 

College is not intended as an official communication and was not 

written with a view to influencing the mind of the Conference on 

this important subject, but merely to say that the College is 

anxious to serve the Conference in this as in every other way when 

its services may be needed. 

J. G. Brown, 

November 19, 1919. President of the Board of Trustees. 

[2] 
REPORT No. 1— BOARD OF MISSIONS 

The Board of Missions suggests to the Conference the following 
policy for the next five years: 

First: That Mission charges be classified according to the probable 
time in which they will become self-sustaining. 

Glass "A." Those charges that may become self-sustaining in 
two years. 

Class "i?." Those charges that may become self-sustaining in 
four years. 

Class "C." Those charges that may become self-sustaining in 
six years. 

Class "D." Those charges that are likely to remain dependent on 
the Board for an indefinite time. 

Second (A.) In the expenditure of money the Board shall use 
the money secured by assessments on the Conference and the 



52 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Duke fund in making the regular apportionment to charges already- 
established. This is not to be interpreted as prohibiting the use of 
unused money that might remain in the fund in the establishment 
of new work should such work become necessary. 

Second (B.) In the use of the Centenary fund, which is 10 10% 
of the total amount of Centenary money paid by this Conference to 
the Joint Centenary Commission, we suggest the following 
division: 

First: That $10,000 of the first year's payment be placed in a 
reserve fund. This reserve fund is to enable the Board of Missions 
to pay preachers on Mission Charges without recourse to borrow- 
ing. This will make the Mission Board solvent. 

Second: That 50% of the balance after the $10,000 is subtracted 
shall be used to enterprise new Mission work and as an emergency 
and conditional appropriation fund. 

Note: — By emergency appropriation we mean that a certain 
amount shall be put in the hands of the Executive Committee of 
the Board of Missions to make such appropriations as may be called 
for and recommended by the proper officials in the interim between 
sessions of the Annual Conference. 

By conditional appropriation we mean an appropriation that is 
made to the charge upon condition that the charge raise an amount 
that is set by the Executive Committee of the Board of Missions. 

Third: That the remaining 50% of the fund be used: 

"A." To defray the expense of the Board of Missions and the 
office of the Missionary Secretary. 

"B." To provide a fund for the Methodist Summer School at 
Trinity College or other educational development features that may 
be endorsed by the Annual Conference. 

"C." To increase the appropriations in the Mission Charges 
already formed, when, in the judgment of the Board of Missions and 
the Presiding Elders, such increase is necessary. 

It is suggested that the enterprising of new Mission work shall 
take the following lines of development: 

First: That methods be introduced in the cotton mill sections for 
the development of the Cotton Mill Churches, and for further 
Mission development in the larger towns and cities. 

Second: That new stress shall be placed on developing the 
country church. 

M. T. Plyler, Chairman. 
A. D. Wilcox, Secretary.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE METHODIST 
MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY 

Your Board of Directors beg leave to report that they have gone 
into the affairs of the Methodist Mutual Fire Insurance Company, 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 



53 



together with the aid of a Certified Public Accountant, and after 
a thorough investigation have found the books of Secretary and 
Treasurer are in excellent condition. 

There is in force at the present time $786,714.00 of insurance 
covering church property and personal effects of preachers belong- 
ing to the two conferences. The past year was the best in the his- 
tory of the Company. A very large increase was made in the amount 
of insurance in force and the assets have also very materially in- 
creased. A dividend of 20% is being returned to the policyholders 
on renewal policies. This dividend which represents a direct 
saving to the Church gives great satisfaction to the various Boards 
of Trustees. 

Your Board recommends that each pastor be required to furnish 
as a part of his report to the Annual Conference such information 
as is necessary regarding insurance on church property, this report 
to be made on blanks to be furnished by the Company. 

We recommend the election of M. T. Plyler as a director, his term 
to expire in 1924. 

Your Board would urge the members of the Conference and each 
Board of Trustees holding property for the church within bounds of 
the Conference to see that such property is adequately protected 
in our Company. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. A. Cole, President. 

[4] 
PURCHASE OF LIBERTY HALL 

The North Carolina Conference has the honor of having within 
its bounds a building whose historic interest and value are almost 
supreme in Episcopal Methodism. In this building was held the 
first Annual Conference of organized Methodism in America. The 
building stands near the town of Louisburg, N. C, and was erected 
and owned by Rev. Green Hill, whose services in behalf of his State, 
as a legislator and soldier, were as distinguished as his services as 
a herald of the Cross. 

Therefore, be it resolved that the request go from this Conference 
that the North Carolina Historical Society at its next meeting, 
or as early thereafter as possible, have read a paper on Rev. Green 
Hill, and that at that meeting action be taken looking to the 
purchase, if circumstances allow, of Liberty Hall— the building 
referred to— which shall be used as a home for a superannuate of 
the Conference. 

Be it further resolved that a Committee of three be appointed by 
the Bishop to investigate the situation and see what are the possi- 
bilities of purchase and other financial steps necessary and report to 
the next meeting of the Historical Society. 



54 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Be it still further resolved that the Western North Carolina Con- 
ference be requested to join in this movement.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE METHODIST 
SUMMER SCHOOL 

The Board of Managers of the Methodist Summer School re- 
spectfully submit the following report for the year 1919 : 

The Second session, June 3-13 was highly successful. A most 
capable faculty, with Rev. H. E. Spence as Dean, gave instruction 
in the undergraduate courses. Fifty-six undergraduates received 
nine days instruction in their respective studies. Thirty-four of 
these came from the Western North Carolina Conference and twenty- 
two from the North Carolina Conference. Ten of these passed 
satisfactory examinations in all their subjects; others passed in a 
part of their work. 

In the graduate department, one hundred preachers registered. 
Dr. F. N. Parker, of Emory University lectured each morning on 
the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. Other speakers filled their 
places on the Program. We mention a few of them. 

Dr. Charles L. Goodell, of New York spoke on the "Heralds of a 
Passion" and Dr. Harris Elliott Kirk, of Baltimore presented 
Isaiah's Message to the Modern Man. Dr. George Albert Coe, of 
Union Theological Seminary, N. Y., dealt with his specialty, relig- 
ious Education. Rev. Thurston B. Price discussed evangelistic 
methods, and Dr. W. P. Few was heard in public addresses. 

Larger plans are being laid for the next term, June 9-18, 1920. Two 
new courses in Sunday School work and one in the rural church 
are to be offered and the presence of laymen and laywomen is to be 
sought. Talent of national and international note is to be secured 
and all courses are to be free to all. 

To continue the woi'k, we are asking that the same financial sup- 
port as given in the past be continued by the Conferences. Could 
the Sunday School Boards contribute something to aid in the work 
to be done in forwarding the Sunday Schools, the money would be 
well spent. 

We would remind the Boards of Education and the Boards of 
Missions of each Conference that the terms of four of the Managers 
expire this year, viz: H. M. North and W. W. Peele, of the North 
Carolina Conference, and G. T. Rowe and C. H. Ireland, of the 
Western North Carolina Conference. According to the plan of 
organization, the respective Boards nominate and the conference 
elects the nominees for filling all vacancies in the Board of 
Managers. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 0^ 

That the entire ministry may be free to share in the benefits of 
the coming session, we respectfully suggest and ask the Conference 
to urge that the Presiding Elders encourage their preachers to 
arrange supplies, or to suspend services on the Second Sunday m 
June, that they may attend the school next year. 

M. T. Plylb^b, Pi~esident- 
W. H. WrLLis, Secretary. 

[6] 
SPIRITUAL LIFE OF THE CHURCH 

It is a fact most evident to every student of human affairs that a 
period of transition is a time fraught with many perils to the 
spiritual welfare of men. Old restraints are loosened, and the 
powers of sin that rule unregenerate hearts have new opportuni- 
ties to assert themselves outwardly. Religion oftentimes takes on 
a worldly form, and the great matter of salvation from sin degen- 
erates into formality and a program of human activities. 

That we are in the throes of such a period is manifest by the 
materialism of our day and the attendant economic and social unrest; 
by the tides of godlessness in our so-called Christian land; by 
many strange and unevangelical doctrines appearing on every side; 
and by worldliness in the Church of God. These conditions lay upon 
the Christian ministry a weighty responsibility and challenge us 
in no uncertain terms to give full proof of our apostolic ministry. 
We, the members of the Cabinet, being agreed among ourselves, 
call upon our brethren of the North Carolina Conference to join 
with us in the following: 

First: That we, during the Conference session, keep before our- 
selves the God-imposed responsibility that rests upon us as ambas- 
sadors of Christ. To the end that we may this year lead men to a 
saving knowledge of Jesus Christ we will give ourselves to private 
and public prayer that the Holy Spirit may make manifest to us 
the wonderful grace of Christ, and that our whole Conference may 
be charged with His Pentecostal power. 

Second: That we make a solemn resolve before God that we will 
be more earnest students of His word and much given to prayer. 
In our public and private ministry we will be vigilant that we be 
not drawn into secular affairs. In love we will cry out against all 
forms of sin, and with all earnestness proclaim the Evangel of 
our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Third: We recognize that there are many uplift and reform 
movements that are doing much to better the conditions of men, 
and they deserve our sympathy and commendation. Seeing, how- 
ever, that these matters are being looked after by our laymen, we 
will not turn aside from our high calling to dissipate our energies 
in these interests, but we will give our whole energy and time ta 
the ministry unto which we have been called. 



56 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Fourth: While we have no interest in a campaign for church 
members or an evangelistic drive as such, we feel most profoundly 
the need of a spiritual awakening. To this end we will give our- 
selves through prayer and a study of the Word of God and work 
among our people that we may experience this year a mighty turn- 
ing toward God. We will call upon our Sunday School Officers 
and Teachers and our godly laymen to keep to the forefront through- 
out the year the evangelistic appeal. We will give men and women 
an opportunity to accept Christ at our regular services, and at some 
time during the year we will hold in all our churches a revival 
meeting. In all of this we will give prominence to the Scriptural 
doctrines of sin, repentence, and salvation through Christ, seeking 
on all occasions to lead the unregenerate into an experimental 
knowledge of saving grace, and to establish all who are in our com- 
munion in Christian faith and practice.

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Your Committee rejoices at the growing popularity of our Orpha- 
nage with the rank and file of our people. God seems to be turn- 
ing their hearts to this institution as He had done to no other. 

We note with pleasure this statement of the Superintendent: "No 
appeal has gone out from our Orphanage without meeting with 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 59 

marked success." We find great encouragement in the fact that 
our Superintendent has done very little this year in the way of 
passing the hat and yet all the needs of the institution have been 
amply met. The Orphanage is now caring for 241 children and 
we regret that this is its full capacity. 

We are gratified with the growth of the endowment and would 
urge upon our pastors to lay this important part of our cause upon 
the minds and hearts of our people on every possible occasion. 
Nothing could put the institution upon so safe a basis as a splendid 
endowment. 

We note with thankfulness that the plan of supporting individual 
orphans by Sunday Schools and organized classes and individuals, 
which was in such high favor last year, is even more popular this 
year and is gathering momentum at a rapid rate. In this con- 
nection we wish to express our appreciation to the women of our 
Conference for the clothing of such a large number of our children. 
We wish also to express our appreciation of the deep interest of the 
Atwater family in the Orphanage as seen in their proposal to erect 
at the Orphanage an Atwater Building to cost about $50,000. We 
wish to express our appreciation of the bequest of $10,000 by Mr. 
Z. W. Lyon, of Oxford, of the bequest of from seven to ten 
thousand dollars by Miss Litella Edens, of Rowland, of more than 
$100,000 by Mr. Will Ormond of Green County, and of $1,000 by Mr. 
A. H. Vann, of Franklinton for the beautifying of the Orphanage 
grounds. 

We note with pleasure the offer of Mr. J. W. Ward, of Rowland, to 
be one of twenty-five to give $1,000 each for the erection of a Baby 
Cottage or Industrial Building at the Orphanage. And since it is 
a recommendation of the Board of Trustees and of your committee 
that such a building be erected we urge the preachers to put this 
on the minds of our people that it may speedily materialize. 

We thank God for the spiritual atmosphere at our Orphanage and 
for the earnest and faithful efforts put forth to save every child 
that enters there. We rejoice in the fact that an annual revival is 
held in the institution and that at the close of the last one every 
child there had made a profession of religion and joined the 
church except a few wee tots who are on probation. 

We request the pastors who have not already done so to hold a 
Thanksgiving service on Thanksgiving or as near thereto as 
possible and give our people a chance to contribute to this insti- 
tution. 

We suggest to those who shall have in charge the next drive in 
the church that the Orphanages in our church be included in the 
askings. We feel that this is proper since this is both a Missionary 
and an Educational enterprise of the highest order. We note that 
a sister denomination in the State is including in her great drive 
now on $610,000 for its Orphanage. 



60 north carolina annual conference 

Recommendations 

First: That we keep before the minds of our people the pressing 
need of an Industrial Building for the vocational training of our boys 
That when sufficient funds become available the Executive Com- 
mittee shall have authority to proceed with the erection of such 
a building. 

Second: That we admit children into our Orphanage under five 
years of age, provided we can secure the necessary funds for the 
erection of a Baby Cottage. In the event that funds should become 
available the Executive Committee shall have the power to build 
such a cottage. 

Third: That the matter of publishing an Orphanage paper be 
left in the hands of the Executive Committee, and if they deem it 
expedient to publish an organ for dissemination of Orphanage news 
they shall have authority to establish the same. 

Fourth: That either the Board of Education or the Board of 
Missions, preferably the Board of Education, give the Orphanage a 
place on their program with the privilege of having a speaker 
present the work of the institution. 

Fifth: That the assessment equal to 10% of the pastor's salary on 
each charge be continued as heretofore. 

We ask the confirmation of the election by the Board of Trustees 
of Dr. Albert Anderson as trustee in place of Q. K. Nimocks, re- 
signed, and of the following for a term expiring in 1924: 

Hon. W. R. Allen. 
Hon. R. N. Page. 
Hox. J. C. Biggs. 
General J. S. Carr. 
Mr. J. A. Long. 
Mr. J. C. Braswell. 
Mr. Graham Woodard. 
Mr. W. E. Springer. 
Rev. L. S. Massey. 

We heartily endorse the work of our efficient Superintendent 
and request his reappointment for the ensuing year. 

J. A. Dailey, Chairman. 
W. H. Brown, Secretary,

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD 

Your Sunday School Board submits the following report: 

We wish to call once more the attention of the Conference to the 

need of renewed activity in the line of Sunday School endeavor. 

More than a year has passed since the allies emerged victorious 

from the fearful conflict which threatened civilization. In spite 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 6J 

of the promise of better days, we have seen little improvement in 
the moral conditions of the world. Chaos and confusion still reign. 
Social and industrial turmoil continually threaten our land with 
even worse conditions than prevailed during the war. Something 
must be done to help remedy these conditions. It is the belief of 
your Board that the most effective way of meeting these difficulties 
and solving the problems confronting us is through a constructive 
policy of religious education, including all agencies that may be 
drafted in this great emergency. It is a recognized fact that only 
the ideals implanted in youth are of lasting value; that the truths 
learned around the fireside are most influential; and that the 
Sunday School is the most effective public agency for the promul- 
gation of the ideals of the Kingdom of God. We are, therefore, 
especially urgent for hearty cooperation and assistance on the part 
of our pastors and laymen. 

Our work has been greatly handicapped this year by our failure to 
secure an executive officer for more than half the year. We are 
glad to report, however, that we have at last secured an efficient 
man in Brother J. T. Jerome, a local preacher, and a son of Rev. 
C. P. Jerome of our own Conference. His report is encouraging 
and we hope for great things in our work in the immediate future. 

We have the following recommendations to make for the ensuing 
year : 

1. That we cooperate heartily with the General Sunday School 
Board in its plans for an evangelistic campaign in the Sunday 
School. 

2. That we promote and maintain a closer district organization 
and provide adequate financial provision for the same. 

3. That the Executive Committee be empowered to secure the 
assistance of an elmentary worker, either for whole time or in 
part, if the services of a suitable person may be secured. 

4. That we cooperate with the officers of the Wesley Bible Class 
Federation in holding a session of that body within our bounds this 
year. 

5. That we encourage the establishing of training schools where- 
ever practical. 

6. That our Executive Committee work in cooperation with the 
Board of Directors of the Trinity College Summer School for 
preachers in putting a course in that school for training our pastors 
and other Sunday School workers in religious education. 

7. That we invite Mr. M. W. Brabham, our former Field Secretary 
and now Rural Specialist of the General Sunday School Board, to 
make a study of one district in our Conference and report his find- 
ings and make recommendations at the next meeting of our board. 

8. That we adopt the Standard Plan for Centenary Conservation 
and set apart December 28 as special Missionary Day in the Sunday 
Schools. 



62 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

9. That we urge our people to attend the Junaluska Training 
School for Sunday School workers. 

10. That we make provisions for securing statistics on Sunday 
School work towards the clase of the year, and arrange to make a 
demonstration of our work by districts and in comparison with 
other conferences, at the next session of our Conference. 

11. That we request the North Carolina Advocate to allow the 

Field Secretary of each conference at least two columns each week 

in that paper.

H. E. Spence, Chairman.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SER- 
VICE, NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE, NOV. 20, 1919 

PRACTICAL CHRISTIA>'ITY 

The practical religion of Jesus is revealed in the expression, "He 
went about doing good," and this was manifested no less when he 
drove the money changers from the Temple than when he healed 
the woman by the wayside. The followers of Jesus Christ must be 
"doers of the Word" and not hearers only. The church today is 
realizing more fully than ever before its position in the world, 
and is not satisfied to deal in theories and religious philosophy but 
wants to be doing something that is constantly making the world a 
better place in which to live. It is not only teaching in the abstract 
but is asserting itself in the concrete, and because of this the church 
is becoming more powerful for the good of man than ever before. 

CAPITAL AND LABOR 

In this day of strikes and strained relation between capital and 
labor, it behooves the church to teach clearly the doctrine of human 
rights and, as far as possible, bring the religion of the Lord Jesus 
Christ in its essence, to bear upon the settlement of all these diffi- 
culties. 

MILITARISK 

We deplore the fact that, since the close of the war, there seems 
to be a spirit of militarism abroad in the land and a call for military 
instruction through our schools and colleges, as well as an expensive 
standing army. We believe the recent war was fought for liberty 
and human rights and are hoping that there will be no other to 
follow. We believe that the "League of Nations" can be so organized 
and constituted that differences between nations in the future shall 
be settled by arbitration on the basis of justice and there will be no 
need to appeal to arms. Our Lord was the "Prince of Peace" 
rather than the king of armies. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 63 

THE NEGRO QUESTION 

The negroes as a people are still a child race. Though some have 
made wonderful development mentally and morally since coming to 
America, the race is not yet capable of self-development or self- 
government. It behooves the white man, therefore, to prove his 
friendship by assisting him in securing christian education and 
putting into practice the Golden Rule in all our dealings with him. 
This we are satisfied will be the most effective way to put an end 
to race riots. 

PEOFITEEBING 

Christianity exemplified in commercial life means a square deal 
to the other fellow. Men professing Christianity should never be 
guilty of profiteering. Your committee has noted the conferences of 
merchants and state food commissioner held in the State and their 
effort to settle this question by fixing a uniform profit. Our con- 
viction is a profit of more than forty per cent is unjust and sub- 
jects the dealer to the criticism of profiteering. 

THE CIGARETTE 

We believe the cigarette is an evil and that its use is injurious. 
The law of the State forbids its sale or gift to anyone under sixteen. 
Our conviction is that this law is not properly enforced. We give 
our endorsement to it and call on the citizens and officers to see to 
its enforcement. 

WORLD LEAGUE AGAINST ALCOHOLISM 

We wish to endorse, also, the world league against alcoholism 
which was organized in Washington, D. C, last June. To us it 
seems necessary that the liquor trafiic, which antagonizes all the 
work of the church, will have to be destroyed in the missionary 
fields before our church can work to the best advantage through 
hospitals, schools, and churches. 

LYNCHING 

We again desire to put ourselves on record as opposed to mob law. 
God's Word calls upon us to submit ourselves to the ordinances of 
men; and mob law, regardless of the crime that may provoke it, 
is unjustifiable, rather it adds one heinous crime to another. 

THE ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE 

Your Board was gratified by the report of the Anti-Saloon League, 
brought through its superintendent. The prayer and activity of 
the church for the past hundred years have been rewarded by the 
overthrow of the liquor traffic. The Eighteenth Amendment of the 



64 XORTH CAROLINA AX^'UAL CONFERENCE 

Federal Constitution changes the attitude of the government to- 
wards liquor for that of license to prohibition, and the enforce- 
ment code recently passed by Congress provides the machinery by 
which the law shall be executed. We are delighted that this code 
places the responsibility for law-enforcement on the Honorable 
D. C. Roper, Commissioner of Revenue, and we instruct the Secre- 
tary of this board to write to Mr. Roper and assure him of our 
cooperation in this work. We are glad of the part that our church 
has been able to take in this splendid work and we urge our people 
to give their united support in every possible way to the Anti- 
Saloon League in all of its efforts to enforce the law and help 
establish prohibition in the other nations of the earth. We are 
glad to hear that there is a probability of overthrowing the liquor 
traffic in some of the States of Mexico, Scotland, poi-tions of South 
Africa, and some of the Scandinavian countries in the next twelve 
months. We give our endorsement to the work of the W. C. T. U. 
and like temperance organizations. 

We recommend that the Conference request the Bishop to appoint 
Rev. R. L. Ravis Superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of 
North Carolina, and Rev. J. Robert Moose, field Secretary of the 
League. 

CONFERENCE FOR SOCIAL WORKERS 

The Board desires to call attention to the Conference of Social 
Workers similar to the one held at Lake Junaluska last August 
which will be held at the same place next summer, and it hopes 
that before that time the churches and Sunday schools will give at- 
tention to the provisions of the Discipline laid down in paragraphs 
113 and 320, which provide that every church and Sunday school 
shall have a committee on Social Service. The responsibility is 
placed upon the pastors and Sunday school superintendents to see 
that these committees are provided. It is hoped that at least the 
chairmen of these committees will attend the meeting at Lake 
Junaluska next summer, and that the church or the Sunday school, 
as the case may be, will defray the expenses. 

J. C. Humble, President pro tern. 

R. L. Davis, Secretary. 

[12] 

BIBLE SOCIETY BOARD 

The American Bible Society has been a mighty agency for the 
supply of God's Word to the world. It has furnished the Truth to 
every nation, and people and tongue. The society has made it 
possible for these nations of the earth to read in their own language 
wherein they were born, the wonderful works of God, until this 
knowledge covers the earth as the waters cover the face of the great 
deep. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 65 

We rejoice to know that through its activity our boys, who, at the 
call of the nation went forth in the discharge of their duty and 
in defense of sacred principles, carried with them a copy of God's 
Word in whole or in part. That they were thus enabled to have in 
their possession this great comforter and instructor to help them in 
the discharge of their duty. That their lonely moments were 
cheered by its comfort, their drooping spirits revived by its bright- 
ness, and in their hours of danger and trial they were guarded and 
sustained by its power. By its possession God was made real unto 
them and they were brought into companionship and fellowship 
with Him. 

We have been told that the Bible was the only book the soldier 
was permitted to carry with him into the trenches. We are thank- 
ful that it was through the efforts of the American Bible Society 
that our boys were enabled to have with them under these circum- 
stances a copy of God's Holy Word. Because of the splendid and 
successful efforts of the society in making this possible, the church 
owes the American Bible Society an everlasting debt of gratitude, 
and surely this should make us love it more and inspire us to put 
forth a greater effort to help this great agent in spreading the 
Word of God. 

We urge that our Pastors carry out the Disciplinary requirements 
with regard to the American Bible Society, and especially the 
observance of Bible Sunday at the time indicated or as near thereto 
as possible, informing our congregations of the splendid work accom- 
plished by the Society and also that a special collection be taken 
at that time to further its work. When the people are informed 
they give liberally. That the proceeds of this special collection be 
forwarded direct to Rev. M. B. Porter at Richmond, Va. We pray 
God that He will bless the efforts of the Society and enable it to 
achieve larger success in making it possible that His Word shall 
be furnished to the World. Because if this world is ever saved and 
its kingdoms won for Christ, it must be done by the Sword of the 
Spirit, which is the Word of God.

W. P. Constable. Secretary.

DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS 

We, your Committee on District Conference Records, beg to report 
that the Records of all of the Districts have been examined by us

CHURCH PROPERTY 

Your Committee on Church Property submits the following report: 

Number of church buildings 765 

Value $3,707,960.00 

Indebtedness 100,912.00 

Value of other church property 166,800.00 

Expended for church and parsonages 250.401.00 

On account of the conditions which have confronted all lines of 
industry, there has been very little building done this year, but 
we are very glad to note that many old debts of long standing have 
been paid and that funds are being collected in several places for 
the construction of churches as soon as conditions permit. 

We desire to call the attention of the preachers and trustees to 
the following facts: that while our property is valued at $3,707,960, 
there is only $1,320,025 insurance carried. In view of this fact 
we urge that all our property be adequately protected by insurance. 

Your Committee recommends that our property be insured with 
the Methodist Mutual Fire Insurance Company, of Statesville, N. C, 
which is controlled by our church. 

We also urge that deeds containing the trust clause be. secured 
for all church property. 

We advise wherever churches or parsonages are to be built that 
the building committee consult the department of architecture of 
the Board of Church Extension of Louisville, Ky., as to plans. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. A. Russell, Chairvian. 
L. T. Singleton, Secretary.

68 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

[No. 16] 
REPORT No. 2 OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS 

Your Board of Missions congratulates the Conference upon the 
remarkable success of the Missionary Centenary Campaign. The 
total amount of subscriptions is $1,774,000.00 for the five year 
period. This added to the ordinary sources of Missionary income 
will produce $2,540,000.00. About 75% of the first years quota has 
already been collected. 

We pledge our support to the evangelistic campaign which is 
now in preparation. We urge the Conference to as loyal a support 
of this feature as it gave in the Campaign for the raising of money. 
With such a support the Conference will surely reap a Avonderful 
harvest of souls. 

We are fully conscious of the unusual responsibility that is placed 
upon us in the judicious spending of the vastly increased missionary 
money within the bounds of our Conference. We desire to avoid 
extravagance on one hand and hoarding on the other. 

Perhaps, for the first time in the history of the Conference, the 
requests of the Presiding Elders for appropriations in the various 
districts have been met almost in full. Also for the first time a 
minimum salary of $1,000 per year is provided with two exceptions 
and conditional appropriations have been made in these two cases 
which when met will give $1,000 salary there. This does not apply 
to student preachers. 

The Board respectfully requests the Bishop to appoint Rev. A. D. 
Wilcox Conference Missionary Secretary for the coming year. 

M. T. Plyler and A. D. Wilcox have been appointed to meet with 
a Committee from the W. N. C. to study the situation at Chapel 
Hill and to recommend a policy for the future of our church there. 

Again we desire to extend our thanks to Mr. J. B. Duke for the 
continued support which he is rendering to Conference Missions in 
the sum of $5,000 per year. 

We recommend appropriations from the Duke fund as follows: 
South Alamance, $100; East Burlington. $200; Pearl Mill and Eno, 
$200; Rougemont, $200; Kennekeet, $300; Hemp, $400; Roseboro,

70 NOETH CABOLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

[17] 
REPORT OF THE EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD 

The Epworth League Board begs leave to submit the following 
report : 

We are glad to be able to report progress in this department of 
the work of our church. This is indicated in the report of our 
General Secretary of the organization during the past year of 327 
Chapters and of our Conference Secretary of the organization of 22 
Chapters. Not only is this true with reference to the organization 
of Chapters, but the report of the activities of the several depart- 
ments of the Leagues in our Conference is encouraging, some of 
which we have pledged already this year for the African Special 
and the building program for Paine College, $1,539.15 and raised 
last year for all purposes, $4,239.69. 

While this is true, we cannot, and we dare not, overlook the fact 
that there are many churches in our Conference in which there are 
no Leagues and no other organization in which our young people 
are being enlisted and trained for service as contemplated by the 
Epwoi'th League. In view of this fact, and the contributions which 
the League has made and is making in supplying preachers, mis- 
sionaries, and other workers trained for service in our church, 
and the call which is being made throughout our church just now 
for enlistment for life service among our young people that our full 
Centenary program may be made possible, it would seem clear that 
this great interest of our Church should receive our most careful 
and prayerful attention. As one means of promoting the work of 
the League we ask the assistance of the members of the Conference 
in making the survey of our field planned by the Central office and 
to be undertaken by your Board. 

We wish to express our desire to cooperate in every possible way 
in promoting the Church-wide revival toward which our Church is 
looking, and we would respectfully urge our pastors to use their 
young people as far as is possible in their plans for this work. 

We desire to commend the Epworth League Assembly which has 
been held for the past two years at Louisburg College. It is both 
educational and inspirational in its plan, and undertakes also to 
minister to as well as develop the social life of our young people by 
sending those who attend back to their respective congregations 
prepared to lead in this phase of their work. It is gratifying to 
be able to report an appreciable increase in the attendance at its 
last meeting. In this connection we would express our appreciation 
of the faithful work of Rev. F. S. Love, President of the Conference 
Epworth League, as well as that of the other Conference officers. 

We recognize the fact that the use of the League literature will 
aid materially in promoting the work of the League. We recom- 
mend, therefore, that our pastors urge our young people to sub- 
scribe liberally to the League publications.

We recommend that the Anniversary of the Epworth League be 
held on Saturday night of Conference week at the next session of 
our Annual Conference. 

We desire to renew our pledge for the faithful cooperation of 
the Conference Epworth League Board with the Conference Epworth 
League, as well as with our General Secretary and the General 
Epworth League Board. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. A. Cade, Chairman. 
H. I. Glass, Secretary.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, NORTH CAROLINA 
CONFERENCE 

The paramount task that now awaits the educational forces of our 
Church is the approaching campaign for funds to endow and equip 
our schools and colleges. It has been well said that our educational 
institutions are to the enterprises to the Church what the base 
of supplies is to the Army. Since our Church, under the providence 
of God, has laid out plans for the larger service for the Kingdom 
of God, at home and abroad, it is an imminent necessity that we so 
equip and endow our educational institutions that they can provide 
the Church with an intelligent, well-trained laity and ministry. It 
is our conviction that we should so equip and endow our colleges 
and theological schools as to make it possible for every man who 
is called of God to enter our ministry to secure such training of 
mind and heart as will enable him to become the most effective 
minister of Christ. 

At the annual meeting of our General Board of Education in 
May of this year a commission was created to have direction and 



72 NOKTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

control of the campaign in the interest of Christian education. 
Bishop James Cannon, Jr., has been chosen President of the com- 
mission. The preparations for this campaign are to begin in May, 

1920, and consummated by the canvass for funds in April or May, 

1921. We record our most hearty approval of this timely and 
necessary enterprise, and we call upon our ministers and laymen to 
give their unqualified support as was given the Centenary Cam- 
paign for Missions. 

We are happy to note the prosperity and good work of our schools 
and colleges. Without exception, the dormitories in all our insti- 
tuions are crowded to over-flowing and are only embarrassed by 
lack of equipment to meet the growing needs. 

TRINITY COLLEGE 

The gifts to Trinity College are more important this year than 
for any other year in the history of the college, excepting only the 
year 1912 when the gifts to the college amounted to approximately 
one million and a half dollars. The assets of the college, including 
endowment and equipment are at present $2,691,995.94. AVe recom- 
mend that the whole appropriation of this Conference this year be 
used for the running expenses of the Biblical Department, if in the 
discretion of the administration it be needed. If any portion of the 
appropriation should be left, the same shall be applied to the 
Foundation Fund of the Biblical Department. We recommend the 
confirmation of the following trustees: Rev. H. M. North, Mr. W. E. 
Springer, and Rev. J. C. Wooten. 

GREENSBORO COLLEGE FOR W^OMEN 

We are glad to note the continued prosperity and widening influ- 
ence of Greensboro College for Women. We express our appreciation 
of the donations to the College during the year, including the promise 
of $100,000.00 by Mr. J. A. Odell of Greensboro, for an auditorium 
and conservatory of music, to be built in memory of his wife. Mrs. 
Mary J. Odell. Your Board recommends that we confirm the election 
of Mr. E. A. Poe as trustee, representing the North Carolina Con- 
ference. 

LOUISBURG COLLEGE 

The report of the Board of Trustees of Louisburg College gives 
evidence of its effective service to the Church. The crowded con- 
dition of the school renders a new dormitory necessary. We rec- 
ommend the conflrmation of the following trustees: Rev. A. D. 
Wilcox, Mr. C. S. Wallace and Mr. Felix Harvey to succeed them- 
selves. 

CAROLINA COLLEXJE 

Carolina College is one of our younger institutions, and we express 
our joy over its growth. We record our sorrow over the death of 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 73 

two of our faithful trustees, Mr. J. W. Carter, and Mr. William W. 
Ormond. We also express our appreciation of their service and 
benefactions. Your Board recommends the confirmation of the fol- 
lowing trustees: For term expiring 1925, Rev. J. E. Underwood, 
Rev. G. T. Adams, Mr. B. B. Adams, Mr. A. E. White, Dr. J. H. Judd, 
Rev. J. D. Bundy and Rev. H. M. North, for term expiring 1923; 
F. W. Carter in place of J. W. Carter, deceased. 

LITTLETON COLLEGE 

Littleton College has for many years rendered good service to the 
Church, and we report with sorrow its destruction by fire and its 
consequent discontinuance. 

SUMMER SCHOOL 

The Summer School held this year at Trinity College under the 
auspices of the Western North Carolina and the North Carolina 
conferences proved beyond doubt its value as a permanent institu- 
tion. We give to the school our unqualified endorsement, and nomi- 
nate Rev. W. W. Peele and Rev. H. M. North to succeed themselves 
as members of the Board of Managers. 

TRINITY PARK SCHOOL 

We are glad to note the prosperity and efficient service of Trinity 
Park School. We recommend that the apportionment to the School 
be applied as last year, viz.: for the payment of tuition of minis- 
ters' sons and candidates for the ministry, and remainder, if any, to 
be used at the discretion of the faculty for loans to worthy students, 
or for running expenses, or both. 

We nominate C. J. Harrell to represent our Board at the annual 
meeting of the Educational Association of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South. 

We nominate the following as an ad interim committee of our 
Board to take up during the year such matters with the Educational 
Campaign Commission as may require attention: Rev. H. M. North, 
Col. J. F. Bruton, Prof. R. L. Flowers, Rev. M. Bradshaw, and Rev. 
W. W. Peele. 

The following are the estimates and apportionments under the 
amount allotted to education for causes within our Conference and 
for Trinity College and for Greensboro College for Women for the 
ensuing year: 

Trinity College $ 5,000.00 

Greensboro College for Women 3,250.00 

Carolina College 3,250.00 

Louisburg College 3,250.00 

Trinity Park School 2,500.00 

Summer School 400.00 

$17,650.00

Louis'burg College — President, F. S. Love. 
Carolina College — President, R. B. John. 

Southern Methodist University — Professor, in the Theological De- 
partment, J. L. Cuninggim.

BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION 

Your Boai'd of Church extension submits the following report: 
The amount raised this year on assessment, $12,845.00, is $1,377.00, 
more than last year. We wish again to thank Mr. Duke for his 
splendid gift to country churches. We are still laboring under the 
overwhelming conviction that the greatest need of our Board is an 
adequate Loan Fund to care for the needs of our Conference. The 
Conference boards were given no part of the funds of the Cenetenary 
Drive, all of this going to the General Board. So our Board unani- 
mously voted to set our goal at $50,000.00, and the Chairman was 
instructed to see that a representative goes to each District Con- 
ference, asking the Presiding Elders to give us a chance to get this 
great cause before the people. We are setting aside each year a part 
of our regular funds for this cause, and will bend all our energies 
this year to increase our present fund to the amount named above. 
And we most earnestly ask all our pastors to take an hour to set 
this cause in its deserved light before our folks. 

We wish again to warn our folks against tying up their property 
in Building and Loan Associations and then coming to borrow of 
us, as we lend on first mortgage. Rev. E. H. McWhorter was elected 
to confer with the Board of Missions, and representatives of the 
Board of Church Extension of the Western Conference, in regard 
to building an adequate church at Chapel Hill. 
We made the following donations and loans:

REPORT OF BOARD ON LAY ACTIVITIES 

Your Board on Lay Activities begs leave to offer some suggestions 
as to specific ways by which, it is hoped, the coordination and mass- 
ing of all our forces achieved in the great Centenary undertaking 
may be made permanent, and by which our laymen may become more 
useful to the Church and the causes of the Kingdom of God. 

First of all, to be useful in the Church they must be "Men of 
honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom," and more 
attention should be paid to family religion and family worship, 
especially as it is adapted to children. Our laymen should hold 
themselves and their money in stewardship to the Master. That 
not only means the tenth of their income, but of their time. 

All our laymen are urged to do their full share in the coming 
evangelistic concentration that the Church is planning for. To this 
end let them do their best to increase church attendance and let 
them aid the pastors by holding services in churches that have in- 
sufficient preaching services. 

Working for the Islorth, Carolina Christian Advocate is a good 
field for a layman's service and in spreading good reading in general, 
especially for the young. Through committees on Social Service 
and organized Sunday school classes the laymen ought to relieve 
the pastors of community and welfare work. 

The Sunday school is the best organized arm of the Church and 
offers now even more than ever a golden opportunity for those who 
would build soundness into the characters of the oncoming gen- 
erations. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 77 

Especial efforts should be made this year to raise pastors' salaries 
wherever this can be done. 

We ask our laymen to follow the leadership of the preachers; we 
c-sk the preachers to seek all possible ways to train and use the lay- 
men, and we ask the presiding elders in their quarterly conference 
rounds to map our specific tasks for laymen to undertake. 

We recommend Mr. Y. T. Ormond for reelection as Conference 

Lay Leader. 

Y. T. Ormond, Chairman. 

C. G. MoRRiss, Secretary. 
[No. 22] 
BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

Having prayerfully and diligently considered the important inter- 
ests committed unto us as your Board of Christian Literature, we 
report as follows: It is pleasing to note that our equipment in 
this department of our work is becoming more adequate and effi- 
cient. Certainly the demands upon us, for evident reasons, are 
greater and more serious than ever 1 efore, and we earnestly empha- 
size the necessity of a more thorough circulation of Chritian Lit- 
erature among all our membership. This is especially essential, if 
we would prevent our young people from being dangerously hurt by 
improper impression from print and picture, and so influence and 
inform them as that they shall be readily available for life-service 
in the Church; if we would qualify our official members for loyalty 
and progressiveness. We, therefore, request our pastors carefully 
to study this situation and zealously to suit their best efforts to 
supplying it most fully, feeling it imperative that such investment 
of thought, time, and toil be made. 

North Carolina Christian Advocate. This, our consolidated paper, 
is now six months old, and furnishes an encouraging account of 
itself. The joint Board of Publication is working harmoniously 
and effectively, and we sanguinely hope that we shall find it fortu- 
nate that w^e have combined our resources with those of the West- 
ern North Carolina Conference. With 5,000 additional subscribers 
for the year, we infer that the new subscription of $2.00 is in no 
considerable measure preventive of progress. Though we sensi- 
tively share in the general disappointment of not having an enlarged 
and otherwise improved paper, we not only heartily commend the 
editors for their energy, enterprise, and efficiency, but also sincerely 
assure them that they may ever expect the members of this Con- 
ference cheerfully and constantly to cooperate with them in prepar- 
ing a periodical in the safest sense worthy of our Methodism, and in 
placing the same in our constituency's every abode. Therefore, to 
aid in promoting and performing these consecrated purposes, we 
urgently recommend — 

1. That every pastor, early in the approaching year, put on and 
push to the finish a thoroughly organized every-home drive, taking 



78 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

his allotment as a minimum, and simultaneously soliciting renewals. 

2. That our laity be frequently reminded to patronize our Advo- 
cate Job Printing Department. 

3. That the accumulation of a sufficiently substantial endowment 
be encouraged privately and publicly. 

4. That the pastors and presiding elders, during the year, seek to 
secure twenty-five hundred new subscribers, to be apportioned to 
districts, as follows: 

Durham 290 

Elizabeth City 270 

Fayetteville 320 

New Bern 320 

Raleigh 270 

Rockingham 270 

Warrenton 270 

Washington 220 

Wilmington 270 

And that the apportionment of these figures to the pastoral 
charges be made by the Presiding Elders, assisted by the District 
Stewards. 

Having had before us the report of the Methodist Board of Pub- 
lication, Incorporated, with charter of said corporation and contract 
entered into between the Board of Publication of the North Carolina 
Conference and the Board of Publication of the Western North 
Carolina Conference attached, we recommend that this contract be 
rewritten so as to acknowledge the agreement by the North Carolina 
Conference Board of Publication to pay in money into the common 
fund of the Methodist Board of Publication, Inscorporated, a total 
of $18,449.96, as having been met in full. 

Having been informed that Bishop Darlington, by request, ap- 
pointed, in the Western North Carolina Conference a Commissioner 
to confer with the Board of Publication, Inc., and a similar Commis- 
sioner from the North Carolina Conference, we, therefore, recom- 
mend that the Bishop appoint such Commissioner. 

Other pnhlications. We believe all our literature, whether in the 
interest of Church, Sunday school, or Missions, to be as good as the 
best, and that it is deserving of more liberal and loyal use. 

The Christian Advocate, The Methodist Revieto, The Voice, and 
The Epworth Era are all superior periodicals, and their circulation 
ought to be so largely increased that their publication would be 
without financial loss. 

The whole church has good reason gratefully to rejoice in the 
continued prosperity of our publishing house, as the most recent 
statement of gains is truly gratifying. 

We request that Bishop Darlington appoint as Editor of The 

Christian Advocate, T. N. Ivey, and as Editor of the North Carolina 

Christian Advocate, L. S. Massey. 

S. E. Mercer, Chairman. 

R. H. Broom, Secretary.
